Llanes, is a very picturesque villa. A former fishing village is now a bustling tourist destination full of flavor and tradition.
Walking the old city you can discover the medieval wall and the tower among the best preserved of Asturias. Along the siecles LLanes was well known as commercial and whales port.
Such a history has left its mark in a very balanced architecture. Popular a long the river, sophisticated in the palaces of the local noblemen and in the legacy of those emigrants that left for America and eventually returned rich: the Indianos Casonas. To the Indianos Llanes owes as well many schools, fountains, open sinks and traditional bowling places in the surrounding villages.
LLanes is today a charming tourist destination that can be easily walked to discover the vestiges of her history, to get lost in the alleys that will take you through the old quarters and the San Pedro Walk along the cliffs. Here you can admire the mighty Cuera, stop for a “sidrina” (cider) in any sidreria that would wink at you or follow the riverside until the port to discover the Asturian history painted by Ibarrola in “Los Cubos de la memoria”.
For her beauty LLanes has been chosen as a backdrop for many films that needed unspoiled nature: a mighty sea, green valleys, and high mountains.
LLanes is also a stopover in the Northern Saint Jacobs Trail on its way to Santiago de Compostela by the coast.

A coast with unique phenomena as beaches not open to the sea (Cobijeru y Gulpiyuri) or blow holes (bufones) that breath when the sea is infuriated expelling foam and water into the air.
Diving: pristine waters when the sea is calm it is beautiful to explore the rocky seabed with plenty of beautiful algae.
